Notification email

  • Banned

    Hi All,
    I am trying to setup email notifications in the advanced setup. The email server I want to use is on one of the internal networks in pfsense, which is working fine. I cannot seem to get a connection when I try to go to this email server. Is there a firewall rule I need to add to use an internal email server for notifications?

    My email server is @ This is the error I get
    Error: could not connect to the host "": ??

    I also tried using the external IP with same results.

    Help! :-X

  • SSH or open a console to your pfSense box.


    telnet 25

    Do you get a connection?
    If not, then your SMTP server is blocking the connection from pfSense, or is listening on a nonstandard port (i.e. not TCP25)

  • What are the settings you are using in System / Advanced / Notifications / E-Mail?
